It’s hard to believe that something as cute as mini-cherries pies can be made with two ingredients.
These are actually one of the easiest recipes I’ve made lately and the presentation is to-die-for cute. I’d whip these up for the kids’ classes at school or just as a special treat on Valentine’s Day.
Just head to the market and pick up a 24 pack of pre-made sugar cookies and some cherry pie filling. I have a mini-muffin tin, but if you don’t you can use a regular muffin tin. Your crust will just be a little thinner.
I also topped mine with mini-hearts just to be festive. But, if you don’t have heart cookie cutters, you can serve them open face or maybe make a little lattice top with the left-over dough.
You could even drizzle it with frosting if you want to get fancy.
Valentine Cherry Pies
24 pre-made sugar cookies
1 16 ounce can of cherry pie filling
Coat your muffin tin with cooking spray. Also, spray the bottom of a glass. Take a cookie round and gently flatten it with the bottom of a glass. Transfer to the muffin tin and press into the opening.
Take the other 12 cookies and use the same method to flatten the dough and then cut a heart shape. Lay these on a flat baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. The dough that’s in the muffin tin will puff up. Used the end of a pestle to push it down.
Fill each tin with a tablespoon of cherry pie filling and top with a cookie heart.
Note: Make sure that the dough is chilled. If it’s not, your hearts will spread too much and no longer look like hearts.
